Summer reads

I had a great holiday and I had recently shared it in my blog-post. However, the mini vacations that I took everyday reading has been at its best during my break. I didn’t assign a specific time to read, I surrounded myself with books. Leave them in your vicinity, so that time to time you can read them.

Also, I like to read two to three different books at a time. Mornings for the heavy stuff with focus and attention and evenings for the laid back novels.

Following were my summer reads;

1. The Power of Now by Eckhart Tole– I started reading his book after listening to Oprah’s podcast and his books have been life changing. His other bestseller include ‘ A New Earth’ which I feel is a revelation. Highly recommended.

2. Rosie by Anne Lamott– I thoroughly enjoy reading Anne Lamott’s books because of her writing style. She had a great sense of humor and a freshness to her writing.

3. Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell– His books are well researched and this book is about the factors that drive high levels of success. Very intriguing facts about how our ancestry influences our behavior. Read the book for more on these. His other books that I’ve enjoyed are Tipping point and Blink.

4. Small Giants by Bo Burlingham– My best pick so far about companies that like to stay small, be great rather grow bigger. In today’s climate, it takes courage to stay small and hold your ground. A great read about the values of integrity, professionalism and human connection that these companies strive for.

5. Muhammad by Deepak Chopra– First and foremost, I was fascinated by the fact that Deepak Chopra wrote a book about Prophet Muhammad. It is a humbling and fresh perspective on the Prophets life.

6. The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra– Great insights to practice mindfulness. I love his podcasts which are called Daily Breath and Infinite Potential.

That’s about the books, I managed to read during my summer break. This week, I am off to work and back to business.

To new beginnings, new adventures and more books!

Have a great start…
